Jewish Program, Berlin

Deadline: February 15, 2010


The Leo Baeck Summer University is an English-speaking six-week summer school in Jewish Studies at the Humboldt University, Berlin. Advanced undergraduate or beginning graduate students from the United States, Canada, Germany, Israel, and Eastern European countries are encouraged to apply for this unique program. As a transatlantic bridge and international meeting point for education and exchange, the LBSU examines Jewish life in Germany before and after the Holocaust, with a particular focus on the postwar, post-Holocaust and contemporary experience in relation both to the broader and ever more diverse German society and to other Jewish communities in Israel, the United States and worldwide.

Students are enrolled in a daily three hour morning academic seminar and attend professionally-led excursions, workshops, and lectures in the afternoon which complement the subjects presented in the seminar. The academic seminar is divided into three two-week modules, each taught by different faculty members. Regular assignments are required (readings, writing, short paper or exam) and each student receives a grade at the conclusion of each module. The modules are taught in seminar style and foster discussion and interaction among the students.

Upon successful completion of the program, students are granted 12 ECT credits.

LBSU will take place from July 9 to August 20, 2010. Tuition includes housing, excursions, and Berlin city transportation. A limited number of partial and full scholarships covering transportation and tuition are available.

Application deadline is February 15, 2010.
